“Our guides…Loreto, Joan, and Phillip…met the excellent high standards of ExperiencePlus! Fun loving and funny, knowledgeable, and extremely low key, they were a wonderful trio and marvelous traveling companions. They answered every question, attended to every request, and were extremely detail oriented. So hats off to the entire organization.”
